I am a painter, potter and poet, live in South Devon and came to the poetry scene in 2014.
I have been published in various anthologies, and won the Ilkley Literature Festival Walter Swan Poetry Competition in 2018. I have been longlisted in the National Poetry Competition and have been placed and shortlisted in several other national competitions. As part of the Teignmouth Poetry Festival organisation team, I run the annual poetry competition.
To date I haven’t had a poetry collection published, but was delighted to illustrate Ian Royce Chamberlain’s book ‘Not Forgotten-Nicht Vergessen’. I have my own little box of books to sell, so if you would like to buy one please contact me on Virginia@griem.co.uk. The price is £7.50 inc.UK postage.
You can see a video with some of my illustrations, and hear how they came about, on Youtube, where you can also hear me reading some of my poems:

As an artist I love to illustrate my poems, and have a small selection of poetry-zines which can be purchased at £3 each inc. postage. These are pocket sized folded illustrated poems. Again contact me on Virginia@griem.co.uk
